, then people don't forget that. >> that was republican senator john mccain on fox news yesterday explaining why exactly he is participating in filibustering chuck hagel's nomination to be secretary of defense. he says chuck hagel is too darn disagreeable. so says john mccain. quote, in a heated dispute over immigration law overhaul, mccain screamed f you at john cornyn who had been raising concerns about the legislation. this is chicken -- stuff, mccain snapped at cornyn. are you calling me stupid chuck grassley once said? no, replied senator mccain. i'm calling you an -- jerk. at a gop meeting last fall, mccain erupted out of the blue at the respected budget chairman pete domenici, quote, only an -- would put together a budget like this. a speech about all his years in the senate through all the heated debates no one had ever called him that. another man might have taken a moment to check his temper, but mccain went on, i wouldn't call you that unless you really were that. >> you can disagree, but if you're disagreeable, then people don't forget that. >> ah, the arbiter of disagreeable. it is
supported. it goes back really to the way you led this segment, which is with rand paul and john mccain and others talking about do the democrats want to do something or do they just want to -- they know the answer to that. the democrats passed the dream act in the house in 2010. john mccain was part of the republican filibuster against a majority of votes in the senate to advance the dream act and put it on the president's desk. there are many criticisms you can make about both parties being very opportunistic. that's what political parties are. they look for political opportunities, but we have a record here. both parties know the record. this group of democrats has done everything can you do facing obstruction to try to pass the dream act, which is stronger, according to many emgregs advocates, than what we have on the table now. >> that's because it was done by executive order, right? jose, really quickly before we let you go, are the -- the president is talking about march for immigration reform. how bullish or bearish are you on that date? >> i think by the end of the senate will

. chris, what was that shout out to john mccain and joe lieberman about? that seemed to make john mccain unhappy? >> he did his patented grimace smile. it was a standard cap and trade bill along the framework of what would later be passed by the house of representatives after president and killed in the senate because no republics republicans would support it. john mccain and joe lieberman in three sessions introduced bills to put a cap on carbon and that amount would have gone down year for year. what democrats tried to pass in 2009 and could not get done. it was a reminder to the republicans that there was a remarkable and in my time covering politics, lurch backwards. newt gingrich was haunted by sitting with nancy pelosi endorsing it. john mccain favored cap and trade. all of that has been undone and destroyed as the republican party has put this in this shrinking denial of the political strain. i think the president was trying to point that out and that's why john mccain felt uncomfortable. >> sitting between two democratic senators and wishing he wasn't. he said i am not going to u

the the the stadium or the wood. they will see folks on tv sitting forward and hunched over and john mccain had horrible body language, one of the reasons he lost. he always looked like he was either on the attack or about to get a tax and there was no in-between and part of that was because of his injury and part of that is sort of coo john mccain is as a human being. we need to work on image, it matters. my last is about tv, the left understand this, they understand it standards and understand what people see is what they believe. this is what the left when the divorce your reason we would never lose an election. as it is it is astonishing to me we are with elections as bad as this stuff is as we are at this stuff. those are kind of the ten points. to recap quickly frame your opponent, frame the debate, such up all the philosophical inconsistencies with your opponent's positions and exploit them. force them to defend the point they say they defend. because there's not a leftist alive in government who is going to tell you the truth about what they really believe. dianne feinstein doesn't want

, at the top of the screen. he's designated as a member of the cabinet, the white house chief of staff. john mccain, lindsey graham, they're always together. not surprisingly. they're good friends, allies on so many of these issues. this is a moment where so many members of the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, some actually try to sit together to demonstrate that there can be some bipartisan cooperation. we'll see what kind of reaction the president of the united states gets when he utters some of the famous words that he will be saying. there you see, by the way, also behind dennis mcdonough, you see eric holder, the attorney general right there. but we did see susan rice, the ambassador to the unit, john boehner, the speaker, joe biden, the vice president will be presiding over this session. chris cuomo is watching it. as soon as the members of the cabinet come in, the president will be introduced. >> thank you very much. let's come back to our minds over here. you're giving me ideas for what you want to talk about. we hear from the white house that this speech will be effective b
as john mccain. be mccain is pretty cool as a personality. these guys, this new crowd. the key word in what john mccain said there was another, another cudgel. >> yeah. >> there's been -- in other words, the democrats have had the upper hand now for weeks now if not months, and he's just saying -- when he said they've got nur comingel to beat us up with, that told me everything. >> it's even better because the president to some extent stands on the sidelines while they self-cudgel. they're beating themselves up. >> i think that's a six -- >> the president i'm perhaps belatedly coming to realize is really deft at using the outside game, which is how he started, social media, et cetera, using public sentiment and the outside game to pressure the congress without doing it himself directly in a way that divides the other party and forces them to come to him. he makes them come to him because -- he's for the most part hands off. wear saying why isn't he lbj or lincoln. that's not how this president operates. he operates with public sentiment from the outside. he deftly puts that stuff ou
to light and john mccain, even though he think hagel is not qualified, senate should confirm him because of reasonable amount of time for questions to be asked. >> harris: what is the white house saying about this whole episode so far for the hagel nomination? >> president said in a google appearance that much of the talk about benz, many questions were asked about that, benghazi. congress is running out of questions. the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary and john brennan to head the c.i.a. are both hanging in the balance. the chief of staff says that is grave concern. >> between john brennan as c.i.a. director and chuck hagel as secretary of defense. we want make sure we have our guys working. we don't want something missed because of a hangup in washington. >> reporter: another vote on hagel is expected after congress returns. >> hagel is all but confirmed, how will it impacted his ability to be an effective leader. do not miss an all new fox news sunday, that is tonight when chris wallace sits down with lindsay graham, that is coming up at 6:00 p.m. eastern. >> kelly:
of all, you see senators lindsey graham and john mccain. two of the biggest headaches for this president, especially going into the second term, but sitting between them tonight, you will see senator chuck schumer, the number three democrat in the house. he wants to craft an immigration compromise with republicans. they're his two closest allies on that. so, they will be down there together. and also, i see, out of camera view off to the side, we have, for the first time in american history, two african-american senators. both recently appointed to fill vacancies. tim scott of south carolina, senator will cowan of massachusetts. and they are democrat and republican and they are sitting together also on the side. but for the most part, they are back to their battle stations here. >> another simple of bipartisan unity, about 40 members of congress will be wearing orange pins, that stands for the no labels movement. democrats and republicans who are committed, they say, to reaching across party lines in order to get something done. about 40 or them wearing those pips tonight. >> just a litt
in 2010. it was also very effective for john mccain at the end of the campaign. it does resonate with the republican base. and actually with some swing voters on income equality and redistribution of wealth. >> well, i want to ask what is the opinion of rand paul up on the hill? he is not going away. i remember going to those campaign rallies when his father was running, the guy that had the broadest coalition and the coalition that the gop needs for the future was rand paul. young hippies for vermont. there's nothing wrong with hippies i was a former hippy. >> these are hipsters now. >> there is energy behind that rand paul message which rand paul has adopted. >> i think i ask the question of the gop moving forward. mitch mcconnell originally tried to beat paul. he is the opposite of the establishment. the establishment has warmed to him publicly because they're forced to. i know internally they do not care for him he's kind of become the new jim demint. he's a thorn in their side. he's the type of guy that would worry about the 30-hour rule. the filibuster. that you could sink

this congress to pursue a bipartisan, market-based solution to climate change, like the one john mccain and joe lieberman worked on together a few years ago. but if congress won't act soon to protect future generations, i will.
